#21 Film: Primer
A confusing adventure for the sci-fi thinker, Primer tells the story of two guys building a time machine. The whole thing was made with a mere $7,000 and it shows. Most of it was filmed in Shane Carruth’s (the director, writer, sound effects guy, lead role, and every thing else) garage. And the actors were his friends. No professional actors here. But they still bring believable performances. Primer is told out of order in some scenes, the whole cast talks in mechanic speak, and not even the characters (or even the writer!) know what’s going on. If you want a sci-fi that makes you think, then this is it.
#21 Game: Soul Calibur 2
I know I have the poster for the arcade version here, but I’m mostly referring to the Gamecube iteration. Not only does this have the best graphics, Link as a playable character, the best controls, Link as a playable character, and fun and creative characters, but it also has Link as a playable character! Yay! What makes Soul Calibur 2 interesting though, is the fact that it has a fun single-player mode. All fighting games worth their salt has a fun multiplayer, but Soul Calibur had a full fledged single player story mode! Sure the story was basic, and there weren’t any special endings or anything, but it was fun nevertheless.
